ATS Euromaster launches run flat repair service

ATS Euromaster is equipping each of its 507 centres across the UK with new technology to enable it to service run flat tyres.

The new service will allow ‘while-you-wait’ repairs without the replacement of a tyre in the event of a typical puncture.

Russell Fleetwood, national car sales director at ATS Euromaster, says: "The growth in run flat tyres has had a massive impact on motorists, enabling drivers with a puncture to continue at a safe speed to the nearest garage, and in doing so avoiding the hassle and danger of changing a tyre at the roadside.

"Until now this had almost always meant purchasing a new tyre on arrival, but this investment enables us to carry out professional repairs to run flat technology tyres, approved by the tyre manufacturers, at a fraction of the cost," he adds.

The run flat repair process involves checking with the customer to ascertain how long the tyre has been in a deflated condition - if it has driven over 50 miles, or exceeded 50mph, then it cannot be repaired.

Average repair time for a run flat is one hour, with prices starting from £9.99.
